Synopsis

Read an exclusive blog by the author





It starts with the girl. How it ends is up to DC Aidan Waits. Isabelle Rossiter has run away again. When Aidan Waits, a troubled junior detective, is summoned to her father's penthouse home - he finds a manipulative man, with powerful friends. But retracing Isabelle's steps through a dark, nocturnal world, Waits finds something else. An intelligent seventeen-year-old girl who's scared to death of something. As he investigates her story, and the unsolved disappearance of a young woman just like her, he realizes Isabelle was right to run away. Soon Waits is cut loose by his superiors, stalked by an unseen killer and dangerously attracted to the wrong woman. He's out of his depth and out of time. How can he save the girl, when he can't even save himself?

Customer Reviews

"Sirens" by Joseph Knox is the edgy, debut crime novel in the Detective Constable Aidan Waits series and a cracking thriller it is too! I was totally intrigued with the start of this intense and haunting book, really keeping my attention to a point I was refusing to put it down. Gritty, sometimes brutal, dark and I imagine quite often true to life, we really see into the murky, seedy and nefarious activities that go on in the criminal world of late night Manchester. The 'Sirens' are a network of young girls working for the 'Franchise' run by the powerful Zain Carver, collecting drug money in pubs and bars. When disgraced and damaged DC Waits is asked to help find the missing teenage daughter of MP David Rossiter he gets closer to her than he imagined and becomes embroiled in the Sirens and their gritty underworld activities. There's a lot of distrust, betrayal and flawed characters in the story and it's a superb thrilling ride to the end to see how it all pans out. Aidan Waits is a great character too, who is far from your typical crime solving protagonist. He soon gets under your skin and it's very interesting and intriguing to read how he became the disgraced cop he is and how his double identity helps to infiltrate Carver's empire. Fantastic narrative, brilliant writing by a very talented author, a taut and well thought out plot and an atmospheric setting make this a truly enjoyable read that I would without doubt recommend. I can't wait to read the highly anticipated "The Smiling Man" the next book to feature Waits - I just know it's going to be another cracker of a story and will be just as successful as "Sirens". The whole 5 stars!

Staff Choice

Complex, urgent and genuinely gripping, Sirens is set to be one of the first breakout novels of 2017. The writing is crisp and precise; the characters dark, troubled and extremely well portrayed, and the tangled plot is perfectly managed to keep the reader puzzling and burning through the pages to the satisfying climax. Joseph Knox has made a very bold entrance in to the world of crime fiction.
